Why The Seamstress Should Be Your BFF


Ever wonder why some people look great in anything they wear?

It's not because they buy expensive clothes, well sometimes that is true, but even celebrities use a little trick with all of their designer outfits. They look great because they customize their clothes with the help of a professional tailor or seamstress.

When was the last time your tailored a piece of clothing?

Some people only think of tailoring outfits for weddings, proms or other important events. Many times we find cute outfits but after trying them on, disappointment sets in because they just don't fit right on our body. So there we go again searching for hours or days for that perfect outfit.

Well girlfriend, shopping doesn't have to be so complicated. Buy that outfit you love and get it tailored. Tailoring includes adjusting the waist, hems, sleeves, inseams and complete restyling of clothing. These alterations also make an outfit look expensive because the end result fits your specific body and enhances your overall appearance.

Most dry cleaners have a tailor in-house. Check ratings on yelp to make sure they do an excellent job. Shop around and inquire about pricing. And remember it's better to buy something that fits slightly bigger because it can be narrowed down. But if a garment is too tight, there may not be much you can do but give it to your little sister.

A small investment at the tailor or seamstress shop can make a world of difference with all your outfits. You can wear all the trends you want because after a little nip and tuck here and there, you will look better. You know the cute outfit(s) you've been eyeing for some time now but weren't sure? Well now you can stop dreaming and start shopping with confidence.
